A knitting mill in Vietnam has transformed its plant to become a net zero carbon emissions and zero waste operation following the installation of a bank of Knit & Wear machines from flat knitting machine builder Stoll.
According to Huy Nguyen, General Manager at Chemtax Vietnam Industrial Company Ltd., all the machines at the plant in South Vietnam are powered by solar power. This, he says, makes it the first zero carbon emissions and zero waste ready to wear factory in the South of Vietnam.
Stoll knit & wear technology allows manufacturers to knit, shape and connect pieces with only one machine within a single process. The result is a first-class seamless knitted garment with a high degree of comfort almost ready-to-wear. Complex further processing steps are omitted completely.
Among the latest editions to Stoll’s knit & wear portfolio are the ADF 830-24 ki W, described as an “All In One” machine with 24 motorized yarn carriers for innovative and individualized knit & wear patterns, as well as the CMS 830 ki, the ideal machine for knit & wear basics. As Stoll notes, everything on the CMS 830 ki knit & wear is optimized for the production of basic knit and wear garments. It is equipped with three systems, a working width of 84′ ins/213 cm and offers a gauge range from E 3,5.2 to a new gauge of E10.2.
